Strong City - Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve

2480 B KS Hwy 177

Tallgrass prairie once covered 170 million acres of North America. Within a generation the vast majority was developed and plowed under. Today less than 4% remains, mostly here in the Kansas Flint Hills. The preserve protects a nationally significant remnant of the once vast tallgrass prairie and its cultural resources. Here the tallgrass prairie takes its last stand.

We walked on the trail that went to the schoolhouse. They had done a prairie burn recently, and very little green could be seen. The stone barn and the house were amazing. They built in the 1880s. We visited on March 21st. It would have been more beautiful a month later when plant life was flourishing.

FREE. I couldn't believe it. 41 miles of trails, plus there are buildings to go through. A 3 story barn! There are explanations about what each level was used for on the audio tour you can access on your cell phone. The house has incredible views of the Flint Hills. Bus tours begin the last Saturday in April and run through the last Saturday in October. They are also free.

Great way to spend a summer day! Amazing views if you're willing to walk a couple miles. Look out for bison and rattlesnakes!

What a beautiful place. The scenery and the wildlife made this a very fun weekend trip.

I plan to go back when it gets warmer but certainly enjoyed my visit on a very windy day!
